The DMCA recently added an exemption which made jailbreaking (i.e. installing unapproved applications onto your mobile device) completely legal. Not surprisingly, a lot of people are asking questions: Will it brick my phone? Is it safe to do?
This week on AppJudgment, Eileen and Graham walk you through one of the latest ways to jailbreak your iDevice: Jailbreakme.com. Unlike previous techniques, this method does not require you to connect to a computer and run some sketchy software. Simply visit Jailbreakme.com and "Swipe to Jailbreak" your iPhone!
What's actually going on is that the website is exploiting a huge security flaw in the iPhone OS and Mobile Safari software, allowing it access to install software onto your device. We expect that this security flaw will be fixed soon, so jailbreak while you can!
Once the jailbreak is complete you will have the "Cydia" App Store on your home screen. This is an App Store filled with unapproved applications, mostly applications that Apple has either banned or will not approve.
Though it is completely legal now to jailbreak your device, Apple has already responded saying that jailbreaking will still void your iPhone's warranty, and that it can make the iPhone less stable and less secure. So while Jailbreaking is legal now, it is still to be done at your own risk!
